The Get Alongs Headline @ Sugarmill 06/09/13
The Gets Alongs were back for a mighty headline along with feisty rock band Kadence, indie lads Scarlet Voyeur and new on the scene The Personas.
Stripped down to a three piece, Kadence still perform as loud as they can. Bass was taken on by front man and the harmonies worked well with guitarist. Hardcore rock and roll was swimming around the Sugarmill as Kadence got everyone hyped up. Screams, dynamic riffs and incredible energy as per from the drummer made this performance the best one from them yet. Without the notable clash and honouree stand from drummer Greg, Kadence wouldn’t be Kadence without him. Elements of a rock band are all conveyed; the attitude, the enthusiasm and the actually music. EP track Cocaine Showers and On the Run saw Kadence off. Lighters in the air and steam of sweat floating.
Headliners of the night The Get Alongs strut on stage to a reggae bouncing beat, so before they even start the crowd are wild with frantic screams and howls – what do you expect from a Get Alongs entrance? The set was a mash up of oldies and newly written tracks. Oldies such as; Strife for Life, I’d Rather Listen to The Smiths and Jane Likes Photos, they all have the unruly reception and enjoyment from the crowd. Harmonies along the combined elements of day-to-day imagery and political commentary into their often anthem music is what The Get Alongs are known for and they smash it every gig. Despite the bass blowing up they humorously entertain the crowd with a newly drunken song, The Smell of Chips Make My Willy Hard. With reckless attitudes and reckless riffs the new tracks are looking exciting.
